NEW YORK — Mission Capital Advisors, a leading national real estate capital markets solutions firm, today announced that its residential trading group has surpassed $1 billion in offered transactions for 2013, and is currently marketing more than $400 million in three separate offerings. 
 
The group, which specializes in the sale of fixed-rate and adjustable-rate seasoned prime, Alt-A and sub-prime loan portfolios, has conducted the sales for a broad array of financial institutions including major financial services firms and various private equity groups. 
 
“Our clients are achieving execution levels that are bridging the bid/ask spread that had existed during the past few years,” stated Luis Vergara, a managing director with Mission Capital’s residential trading group. “Capital continues to flow into the residential space with liquidity being enhanced through financing sources that allow investors to pursue larger trades.” 
 
According to Mission Capital’s research, year-to-date transaction volume for the sale of residential whole loans in the U.S. has already exceeded $30 billion.
 
“It’s interesting to note that while $30 billion in transactions represents more than double 2012’s transactional volume, the number of transactions completed year-over-year has remained relatively the same,” Vergara said.
 
In addition to its core loan sale business, Mission Capital has expanded its platform by offering customized solutions to major financial institutions that maintain a trading presence but require resources to handle the numerous “back office” functions necessary to conduct systematic loan sales.
 
“For the largest institutions, the unwinding of legacy positions will be a multiyear process,” stated Dwight Bostic, a managing director and head of Mission Capital’s residential group. “The focus of Mission Capital’s core loan sale business has positioned us to provide solutions that are variable in both cost and commitment. With expertise in the demands of whole loan buyers as it relates to collateral and compliance, we’re able to ensure that our clients’ loan packages will trade with minimal fallout.” 
 
Additionally, Mission Capital provides portfolio valuations for the FDIC and regional banks, and has entered into a long-term agreement to provide valuations for a major lender serving investors of seasoned residential loans. 
 
“Our expertise in modeling residential loans combined with real market execution provides an unprecedented level of precision in our marks,” Bostic said.
